song of the night:: get ready to die edition

First, the daily self-linking thing: Words. Pictures. Thank you.

Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine covering Disturbed's Down With Sickness. [download]

Some of you may recognize this from the 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead. In my humble opinion, that scene was the greatest juxtaposition of music and film ever recorded. It was perfect, and using this cover version rather than the original was an absolute stroke of genius.

Though I have to say that someday, someone will use the idea Allah passed on to me - having Scarborough Fair played in a zombie movie - Picture them all milling about outside the house in Night of the Living Dead. "Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyyyyme..." - and that will become the greatest movie/music moment ever.

Also, this just might be the greatest cover song EVER. Check out much more by Mr. Cheese right here.

Picture them all milling about outside the house in Night of the Living Dead. "Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyyyyme..."

This would work, too: remember at the end of "Dawn" when zombie Steven breaks through the door and Fran stares at him in horror?

You sync that moment with "She once was a true love of miiine..."
